William E. Bickel 1946-2024

Westborough – Bill was born in Pittsburgh and raised his family here. After a short and fierce battle with AML, Bill died on May 19, 2024.

Bill served as a Professor in the Administrative and Policy Studies Department within the School of Education and as a Senior Scientist at the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC) for over forty years. The core of his professional life involved teaching the next generation of applied educational researchers and evaluators and leading local and national evaluation efforts.
